I'm reading two books at the moment;

From Beirut to Jerusalem - Tom Friedman

Roots, Radicals and Rockers: How Skiffle Changed the World - Billy Bragg

Hopefully the book is more coherent than was the Amazon Prime series. Excellent, frightening premise, with many, many parallels to the current administration, but mediocre execution, for the most part.

A coherent Philip K. Dick novel would be oxymoronic.

It's been ok so far, but I've been diverted to In the Garden of Beasts by the parallel with current affairs.
